Assistant Professor

College of Education


  • BFA: Rochester Institute of technology
  • MS: Niagara University
  • PhD: University at Buffalo

I have worked with diverse populations of pre-service teachers, public school students, and out-of-school youths for nearly two decades. I have taught literature and writing courses to teacher candidates as well as teaching methods and education courses.

I have published research on multimodality, teacher education, and implementing digital video into ELA classrooms.  My current work centers on discovering ways to encourage and support teachers to be culturally relevant and uncovering ways to develop new culturally sustaining pedagogies. I have been part of over twenty educational conference presentations.
